Cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) refers to the overall GPA, which includes dividing the number of quality points earned in all courses attempted by the total degree-credit hours in all attempted courses.How is it different from term or semester GPA?
Your semester / term GPA is your Grade Point Average for that one term or semester. Your cumulative GPA is you grade point average for all attempted courses in the program.
